House of Hunger by Alexis Henderson

dark mysterious tense fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes


An incredibly well-constructed narrative on class differences in which the upperclass literally feeds on the lower class.  Beautiful women born to the lower class or those who were illegitimate are promised a better life in exchange for years of indentured servitude during which their blood is literally taken, this resulting in various health concerns or just overall feelings of faintness. But is feel the need to do this because it’s the best chance they have for a better life a the one to which they were born.
